Ocasio-Cortez fact-checked for 'highly misleading' claim on Trump funding for opioid emergency

Recommended Posts


“Ocasio-Cortez is making a highly misleading comparison,” Kessler wrote, before adding: “the situations are not comparable.”

While Congress refused Trump $6 billion for a wall, Kessler noted, "Congress acted to give the administration more than $6 billion for the opioid crisis, so there was little need for him to transfer funds without congressional authorization."

He concluded: “Trump has no need to transfer billions of dollars for the opioid emergency because Congress already has appropriated billions of dollars. Trump’s backing of a national public-health emergency did more than raise awareness; it triggered a congressional response. So it’s the exact opposite of the standoff over the wall.
